Gwen Sponsor Pack

£25.00

Our “Sponsor a Pony” scheme is a way of helping to support our ‘3 Rs’ philosophy, Rescue, Rehabilitate and Rehome. By sponsoring a pony you are helping towards the costs of us rehabilitating equines and wherever possible, finding a safe and secure future with a loving loan home.

If you sponsor one of our horses or ponies you will be able to come and visit them on Open Day and at other times by arrangement. Sponsorship helps us raise vital funds to continue our work rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing horses, ponies and donkeys who are the victims of neglect, cruelty, abandonment and poor circumstances.

If purchasing sponsorship as a gift, please specify the recipient’s name in the Notes section on the Checkout page.

Description

Gwen was found by two hikers in a remote part of the Brecon Beacons National Park stuck in a gorge. She was pulled free and left her to return to the herd of ponies standing nearby. When they returned the following morning to check on the foal, they discovered her alone, standing in almost the same spot. The other horses had gone. So weak was this little ‘wild‘ pony that she didn’t even try to resist the human help offered her. Lluest Welfare Assistants Shannon and Rhian had come to the rescue armed with a bottle of mare replacement milk to rehydrate the foal for her journey back to the Trust and she drank it greedily. Because she was found off the beaten track, the first part of her journey was in the back of a 4×4 to the waiting Lluest ambulance. She was given the name Gwen in the back of the 4×4.
